[Movie Review] The Thing (2011)


Those Norwegians dug it up.
I mentioned previously how much I love remakes/reboots and the like. Chris Nolan is one of the few directors I trust with material like this along with Zach Snyder and James Gunn. Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. is no Zack Snyder and neither of them are John Carpenter.
So, where does that leave us?
That leaves us with a film that thankfully the producers pushed for when Universal thought about remaking The Thing. Don’t do a remake, do a prequel.
Exactly what happened at the Norwegian camp?
